Can I suppress my feelings until we are ready ?

I told one of my closest guy friends last year that i like him, and that i wasn't ready to date. Months later he told me that he likes me, but he doesn't want to 'start anything' because he doesn't really know what he wants in a woman. (Which is understandable because were religious people, and if we were to date, it would be to eventually be to get married.) Lately though, we've been hanging out a lot, and i'll catch him staring at me a lot. And he'll often find a reason to get close to me, or touch me. So, even though hes not ready, is there potential for a real relationship in the future? How can i suppress my feelings until were both ready?
